I had a meltdown before work this morning. It was about nothing in particular but it came on fast and passed through me like a storm and I yelled loud enough and long enough to make my voice go hoarse and then I threw a messenger bag against the hallway wall and cried on the stairs. Despite all that, Bevan pulled me into one of those hugs that takes all your weight away and the day became possible again.

The way things are right now remind me of that quote from Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower that goes "So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be." You should definitely read that book if you haven't already.

After work I walked to Chipotle and ate and read and then I met Jeren at the Westfield to see Wild.

Since I've been posting a Monday video for the past several Mondays, I'm gonna do it again today. Raleigh Ritchie's "Bloodsport" is my favorite song right now. It was recommended by Rainbow Rowell, an author that I can't get enough of and who I plan to gush over on this web log later in the week, if I can. Anyway, listen with a lot of bass, preferably on headphones that shut up the world.
